src: default to numeric UID and GID listing
Like iptables-save, print UID and GID as numeric values by default. Add a new option `-u' to print the UID and GID names as defined by /etc/passwd and /etc/group. Note that -n is ignored after this patch, since default are numeric printing for UID and GID. Acked-by: Phil Sutter <> Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <>
